Huge Dough and Dinners

Well last week I went to two Christmas parties. Before the second one, we made pizza at Christine's apartment. She had some dough rising in the oven and.. it rose too much. BLAM!
I didn't get any of the finished pizza pictures because it was devoured, but we made some tomato pies with garlic, and some pizzas with mushrooms, broccoli and tomatoes. And cheese for everybody but me.

Last night I made tofu on the George Foreman again. Fantastico! With green beens and corn/tomatoes. I liked this dinner.Tonight I'm at Christine's apartment. We had crispy cubed tofu (which I brought with me, heh) green beans and sweet potatoes. We did the sweet potatoes in the microwave on high for 6 minutes, I've never done it before. At first I didn't poke enough holes and they jumped around a little.. but then I poked some more and they came out tasting delicious!

you made my day! I thought I was the only one whose baking expands too much/explodes!

WOW, that's some crazy dough there, haha - at least the actual pizza turned out well!! sounds delicious!!

George Foreman grills are incredible - I love mine :0) glad to see that it worked so well with your tofu; and your vegetable-accompaniments are great choices :0)

making baked potatoes in the microwave is so much easier and faster than baking them in the oven - I "bake" squash in the microwave all the time!

I love that pizza picture - how hilarious!

And don't worry, we all have a few kitchen disasters of our own. Unfortunately too few of us have the good sense to take a photo of them when they happen! LOL!

Happy holidays :)

Mmmmm, your tofu looks perfect! Seems like we always just end up throwing Yves hotdogs on our Foreman. I want some of that! Any tips to make mine look like yours? Hope you had a great 2008, Tania! Your photo is still on our fridge! Love it! :)

I have a George Foreman grill and never use it. Hmmm....I wonder why? I'm going to try tofu on it! Thanks, you've inspired me!
